This was the other side. Isn't she pretty????
They gave each person a card when they got to the door. This card is who you "are" for the day. I was Anna....a young finnish lady traveling with my infant son in second class to the states to be with my estranged husband.
Rhonda was a woman named Irene in first class! Snot! :-)
This is what Rhonda's quarters would have looked like both for her "fake" person and for her! Funny how we got people that were similar to us in real life! :-) It puts into perspective though, the grandiose....how much better the first class were treated.
Here is the captains wheel and it is big and heavy. It is amazing to me how this monster of a ship was steered with this little wheel though.
The museum was full of artifacts that came from the actual wreckage. Things were donated by family members much of the time....which made it neat because then there was a name to put with the item. We were told to look for our name throughout the museum, because you never know when we might run across something that may have belonged to "us". I never ran across anything that belonged to me, and neither did Rhonda, but it wasn't for lack of looking.
There were only 20 women that served on the Titanic and 2 boys. The rest were men. Most perished, including the 2 young boys, but many survived who helped with the life boats. Here is a picture representing the crew....of course this would NOT be all of them, there were 200+ crew members.
I did forget to mention that at the beginning there is a cute little window with two dogs in it. They were the dogs that were abundant on the Titanic. They were small lap dogs and could be carried around, hence their popularity. They were so cute!
At the very end there was an interactive Polar the Titanic Bear on a screen. He says, "Hello" as you pass by....so you think it is just motion detected....until he mentions something about you...like what you're wearing, your color hair, etc. It didn't take long before I noticed a small camera above the screen. So there were several people that carried long conversations with Polar the Titanic Bear! Very nice Bear he was indeed!
